Product Description

The albums that Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and other classic pop singers made in the 1950s usually consisted of standards from the golden era of pop songwriting in the 1920s, '30s, and '40s. For this album, Cole had the idea of putting together a set of newly written songs in the classic style, with typically sympathetic arrangements by Nelson Riddle. "Personally, I hear the magic in all these selections," Cole wrote in the liner notes. "It will be interesting to see whether I'm right." The magic listeners hear today is in Cole's voice, not in the songs, all of which are as forgotten as most of the songwriters. (There are a couple of ringers, such as Johnny Burke, Sammy Cahn, and Paul Weston, but they're not at their best.) The album was assembled from four recording sessions held between June and November 1958. Two songs, "This Morning It Was Summer" and "A Thousand Thoughts of You," were recorded on August 18, along with four other tunes. Those other selections have been added to the album as bonus tracks for mail-order firm Collectors' Choice Music's 2007 reissue of To Whom It May Concern. Two of them, "Give Me Your Love" and "Non Dimenticar," became chart singles for Cole; "Bend a Little My Way" was the B-side of "Non Dimenticar." Cole is in bilingual mode on the songs, mixing in French, Spanish, and Italian. The material doesn't quite fit into the album's concept, since songs like "Non Dimenticar" and "Coo Coo Roo Coo Coo Paloma" are somewhat familiar, but the musical tone and their contemporaneousness with the album tracks makes the tracks appropriate additions. ~ William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide
